I going to reject your claim Lin Dan couldn't have won all these titles without assistance, you'll say the opposite ... Let's move on

Its time for others to be more proactive to reproduce more children. Quick, do it every night to beat china population. lol.

China has to watch out for these two players: Tago and Santoso. I will say these two are the favourites to win the gold medal.
If Lin Dan does not perform like how he did in Asian Games, he will be overwhelmed by these players' energy and speed.

and i still hope that LD can bounce back from his off-form performance now at OG later. remember what happened early in 2008 (especially in TC), but finally he can perform well in the OG. hope it can repeated this time.

Current Lin Dan cannot win the Olympics
What am I saying is if Lin Dan never regains his old form and plays like how he played in Thailand, I can put all my money lay bet (Lin Dan won win at all).
Even if he produced the same performance in Thomas Cup 2012, I still say he wont win because a lot of players are younger, faster and more determined than him to win.
Lin Dan's lack of jump smashes when he should have executed them and his number of unforced errors based on match record statistics will be his undoing.
The winner will be a player who is younger, energetic and powerful in his attack. Tago or Santoso fits the bill. It's the Olympics, so with the assumption they will step up their game.
Initially I thought Lee Chong Wei will win this hands down. Now that he is injured....this event will be the most open competition ever.

but it's not a sin to keep a hope i think? hehe
about LCW's injury, didn't the coaches said that it would heal before OG?

Just watched the replay of the 16th Asian Games 2010 MS Final Lin Dan vs Lee CW - one of Lin Dan's masterpieces in my view for which we must also thank his great rival Lee CW. It's worth watching and again for those who've seen it. For those who understand Mandarin,the commentaries made it even better as one of the two commentators was none other than the legendary Zhao Jianhua, and you would catch more than a glimpse of Grand Master Tang Xianhu with Xia Xuanze. What a magnificent match with a number of brilliant,thrilling rallies.
If Lin Dan can play to that level for this coming LOG,let alone at the level of his Beijing 2008 OG pinnacle,he will undoubtedly win gold again.

This is why I'm a fan of Lin Dan, he is just so unpredictable. I personally have no idea what his chances of winning the Olympics will be. I think the biggest question is how much Super Dan(Olympic Final LD) is left or is it completely gone or he's just been hiding it all this time? Along with not knowing how good LCW will fare post injury. I hope and have a feeling this is going to be great Olympics, because I think both LCW and LD are going to surprise us one way or another!

Slow, too many unforced errors and you see one/two jump smashes in each set which is not a good thing.
LCW on the other hand is one year older, fitter, FASTER and he smashes like a crazy person when he is forced to.
Each rally you definitely see a big smash from LCW. As for LD ? If he delivered one big crosscourt smash in one set, consider yourself lucky to even watch it.

If LCW is not injured, his statistics of unforced errors is beyond comparison. Lin Dan's unforced errors will be the main source of points for his opponents. And I am talking about Lin Dan's current form in 2012, before that he is still good enough to stop LCW in a fierce contest. Right now, I am beginning to doubt Lin Dan's ability to do so because his decline is very apparent.
It's a pity because he is only 28 and already let that number affected his game so much. If I am in his shoes and still remind myself I am only 28, glory hunting will be the last thing in my mind as long as the body allows plus with CBA to design special programme for me to maintain my fitness level. I am not asking too much from him to be honest. If you want to play badminton, then play seriously do not have a laugh at it.
Lin Dan should realise the business in London is a serious thing. He shouldn't think of just having fun and playing around for the sake of it. A lot of people will be really pissed if he goes to London with that kind of mentality.
While other players like LHI, Sasaki and especially LCW are playing the best badminton of their life at very late stage but they cannot win big prize.

What the hell,
Have you seen LD play the big matches? Do you not remember his form in the world championships? He showed us a glimpse of his abilities and the greatness that he has. He WILL preform on the big occasion. I know he slacks off in the smaller and lesser tournaments... but heck its lesser tournaments, I don't know even why he enters them to begin with.
I wish for a finals between LCW and LD as it will probably go down as one of the greatest matches of all time. LCW desperately fighting to obtain a gold while the great LD obstructing him.

about LD not smashes, yes, maybe you're right. but somehow, he still reached the final of AE2012 and didn't lose a match in TC. so i don't think that he is that bad.
just hope he now prepared well for the OG, can advanced through the final, give us amazing match to talk about, and would be better if he can grab the gold again.
